not sure it counts because it was the second ever but the opening HSF from the 1ftv show (8/13/75) is pretty special.

i'm with you guys on both of those. the swing terrapin and gamh h>s>f are total classics. probably my favorite versions of both tunes- and both show openers!

i'll add to those- 2/9/73 eyes (and about 5 other tunes that night), 9/7/73 let it grow, and 4/17/72 he's gone. the he's gone is not the best version ever and isn't even the full song as we would come to know it, but it is a fun and surprisingly confident take on a new tune that really benefits from the dual keyboard setup of the time. plus i love the video of it. the look on jerry's face about halfway through his solo (when he's looking across the stage at phil/keith around the 4:30 mark) is just beautiful. he looks completely peaceful and humble and soulful and playful despite the fact that he is in the middle of a solo and his wailing strat is leading the band through a brand new song in front of an audience and television crew. tops.

you missed one Cliff. About two months before at Winterland.

Crazy Fingers*, Beat It On Down The Line, Deal, Big River, Peggy-O, Me & My Uncle, Help On The Way*-> Slipknot!-> Franklin's Tower* Blues For Allah-> Drums-> King Solomon's Marbles-> Blues For Allah, Sugar Magnolia, E: U.S. Blues

The Franklin's is really mellow.
okay sounding aud has first Help (no lyrics though) and first Franklin's. There is a sbd source on the archive but it doesn't have much of the show.

Could be, I was just listening to this show last night. First Estimated, too, I think, also good.
